Mark, I'd be more supportive of attribute based selection,

parameters as Tammy suggested?

Yep, me too. Putting true conditional sections in a DTD customization layer would be a major PITA, and would require us to change the DocBook FPI.


Time to move to the XML method of attribute-based content selection. And, yes, the stylesheets are where all the filtering occurs.

Especially since the current DTD may well be the last for docbook?

Yes, but the proposed RELAX-NG design would allow one to easily generate DTDs (even customized ones) from the customized RELAX-NG schema. One difficulty there, though, is that the generated DTD will not be customizable, i.e. it won't contain any paramter entities.


A move to relax NG would make any development work here redundant?

Not sure I understand your question, Dave, but I suspect the answer is yes:)
